Sinopsis:

It's 1886 and Gunner Hodge, known to the White Mountain Apaches as Gny, suddenly reappears in Arizona after a six-year odyssey and contracts with the Indian Agency and U. S. Army to spearhead a manhunt for outlaw Apaches, successfully tracking and finding them, killing one and capturing three for trial at Fort Bowie.Soon afterward Penelope Allison shows up at the Fort, a young woman he grew to love while studying under the tutorship of her father in the East three years earlier. Believing Penny is there only because of her interest in a young officer, Gunner becomes disheartened. He leaves Fort Bowie abruptly for Socorro, New Mexico, only to learn short days later that the same renegades he captured earlier killed two jailhouse guards and escaped from the fort, taking Penny Allison and another hostage with them.The Army's attempts to recapture the hostiles in the mountains are futile and Gunner knows that the only chance to recover Penny alive is if he alone goes after her, offering himself as a target to the vengeful Charlie Chiquito for the killing of his brother.

About the Author:

For as long as he could remember Dan George had been attracted to the lore of the old west. He loved hearing and reading about the times and particularly about the courage and strength of purpose of the men and women who had a hand in shaping American frontiers. He saw those early inhabitants not only as expressive and intelligent, but also with the same emotions and dreams that we have today and became convinced that any number of them, given the circumstances, could be our next door neighbor and we'd never know the difference. Now retired and with age enough to recall memorable conversations with relatives and acquaintances who had lived in the 1800s Dan George writes about those early times in a straight-line, fast paced style with mesmerizing story lines taking place at sites he has personally explored and researched. Gone are the slow-talking stereotypical protagonists that many have portrayed in western tales. In their place are smart, strong-willed men and women realistically depicted in action-packed novels that will rival the most riveting modern dramas today.
